Waves breaking slowly (25/365)

    Looks good viewed On Black

    Just playing around with some more smoke photography, trying to finally get it right this time. About half-way through the shoot I came up with a rather spiffing idea: Smoke photography is awesome, as is macro photography. What if I tried to take a few macro shots of smoke?

    Turns out it is an excellent way of torturing yourself: Smoke, by its very nature, is extremely transient. When you're working with macro photography, your DOF is practically zero, so focusing on a constantly moving and evolving plume of smoke turned out to be a right royal nightmare. Turned out pretty good, though, I think!

    Oh, and if you're curious, I did a tutorial of smoke photography a while back!

    This picture is part of My 365 photo project. According to my handy 365-project-counter, I'm still running behind.
